If you want to discuss this question please re-post it in the respective forum. A portion of$6600 is invested at a 5% annual return, while the remainder is invested at a 3% annual return. If the annual income from the portion earning a 5% return is twice that of the other portion, what is the total income from the two investments after one year?
(A) $180 (B)$270
(C) $300 (D)$320
(E) $360 any shortcuts?? _________________ shubhangi Manager Joined: 26 Aug 2003 Posts: 233 Location: United States Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 13 [0], given: 0 ### Show Tags 15 Dec 2003, 11:55 x = portion invested at 5% 0.05x = 2(0.03(6600 - x)) 0.05x = 396 - 0.06x x = 3600 Return on portion invested at 5% = 0.05(3600) = 180, so the rest of the portion should return 90. Total return income = 180 + 90 = 270 You can do trial and error methold to get the values too but that may take longer... well depends. To me this theoretical approach was faster.
